This may be surprising, but many sophisticated products like ours use 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi because the entire ecosystem of components is not yet updated to the 5 GHz spec. Many IoT products do not need this much bandwidth, so manufacturing partners have not been incentivized to make cost effective components. However, we understand it would be more convenient for many customers, and we intend to include 5 GHz as soon as possible. In the meantime, if your router is 5 GHz only, you can purchase an additional router to connect and configure for using Bruvi and any other 2.4 GHz devices. Here's how.
